I have so much crap to do and so little time.
I am behind on commenting on your blogs...I did read them though..:)
Every year I lead the Christmas Card Exchange over at this guy's fan club.
|I took that picture at the LA concert|
It is a lot of fun to do this but to take care of the exchange not all fun. Lots of people and they all have crazy requests...it is driving me nuts! Some want short lists, some want long lists and some want only Americans (it is so hard to figure out the postage for Canada!!). We get all these cards with pics of KU and the boys make a huge collage with them!
I am on The annual Christmas shopping mission.
I HATE shopping.
I have to take care of my family's presents now so I can ship everything so that it is there on time!
Mon 3 miles easy
Tue 4 miles tempo
Wed: wasted my time at the Dr
Thu: 5 miles
Sat: 3 miles
Sun: 8 miles
total: 23 miles
I finished October with 95 miles. Last 3 mos have been pretty good: 120-111 and 95 miles.
My next 2 races will be Mission Inn 10k in 2 weeks and the Holiday half marathon on December 11.
Both of these have hilly courses.
The 10k was my first 10k race ever and I am returning to beat the crappy time I had a year ago. I almost wish I had signed up for the Half Marathon there because all the hills are in the 10K course and the second part of the half is nice.
Now I am wondering if I should do HILLS workout instead of my SPEEDWORK.
I do struggle in hills. I have a hard time keeping a decent pace going up.
I have been working on a couple of things
1. Forget about Long Beach
2. Run my shorter runs (3 to 6 miles) faster
3. Relax my shoulders...tend to be too high.
Kids were off Monday...Halloween is a Holiday did you know that? I am kidding but they were off for real. So they did a few puzzles..Maggie was not impressed.
And we went to the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. It was a great day! I love Long Beach.

They went up and down and up and down and up and down!
Thank you for the comments on my last post you guys are the best!!
